Picking The Right New Car For You
Share this post

So, the old grey mare (your old car) ain’t what she used to be; she’s on her last legs (or, in this case, tires) and needs to be put out to pasture (up on blocks!). It’s time to buy a new car!

Picking The Right New Car For You: Where to Begin?

It used to be pretty straightforward, sedan, compact, or pickup. Of course, there were also sports cars and off-road options, but they were for (wealthy) hobbyists, not the average person who needs a way to get around town and country. Now there are many options and new models to choose from; it can be so daunting that many people buy a more recent model of the car they had, even though there are many new and maybe even better choices.

So, where to begin? The old saying goes, “The buck stops here,” but in this case, we start with the buck; precisely how many of them can you spend? Fortunately, there are many options depending on your budget and new purchasing methods. One great way to pay is to apply for a Novated Lease, which automatically deducts reasonable payments from your paycheck every month, saving you money, time, and hassle! Once you’ve worked out your budget, it’s time to think about your needs.

The right car for you

If you are single, or it’s just you and your partner (no kids, yet anyway), and you need something to get to school or work in, then a compact or mid-level sedan is the right choice. If you have a hobby or job that needs you to carry a lot of extra baggage (like your tuba, surfboard, and garden tools), then maybe a small van or pickup is just the thing. If you have a big family, you need to haul around to places like school, your kid’s football match, a day out shopping, or a trip to the beach, then you will need more seats and storage room, so go with a bigger van or SUV.

It’s also essential to ensure your new car isn’t one of those petrol guzzlers, or you might even want to look at the latest electric and hybrid options. An economical ride can save you lots of your hard-earned money as well as help save the world. Here are some great eco-friendly! Make sure to give your possible choices a test drive so you know what you are getting into and that it feels right to you!

Now that you’ve driven your sweet new ride off the lot don’t forget there’s still some paperwork to do. It’s time to do so, and you’ll be street-legal and ready to roll! Click here for driving licence information.

So, now I hope you have a better idea about how to drive home in the right car for you!
